This policy brief discusses new evidence in the economics profession showing that capital controls are important macro-prudential measures that nations should have in their toolkit to prevent and mitigate financial crises. United States trade and investment treaties do not reflect this emerging consensus on capital controls. It is essential to rectify this problem as the United States finalizes its new moves forward on negotiations for a Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) and a bi-lateral investment treaty (BIT) with China.
